Description

This is my attempt to modify JJ’s Leg-O-Mutton shirt, and it’s only the very rough draft. I intend to make it over in nicer material. Personally, I didn’t like the turtle neck with the lovely lines of the bodice, so I tried to make the neckline mirror the bodice lines. I’ll be improving the shape of the neckline on my second try.

Material Notes

An old bedsheet… good, cheap material for trial-and-error. :)

    That is fierce my dear! Great job! I love the slightly scalloped neckline.

    Great alterations, it adds a more interseting dimension to the pattern, well done!

    I love it! When you do get everything finished, could you maybe scan a pattern? :)

    I really like what you are doing with the neckline, thats a really nice shape.

    I know it’s only supposed to be a rough draft but the colour is lovely!
